We offer proprietary matching of SLEDs, to produce a multi product combination, which combines a single spatial mode, across a broad spectrum for both sensing or telecom applications that require a broadband spectrum. With a total output power up to 50 mW, that covers a range of from 1250 nm to 1700 nm, the SLED offering provides unparalleled flexibility value and versatility, for those customers who need quick agile alternatives for drop in IR Light sources, to fulfill spectrum needs

The Light Source family, provides the required spectral stability, and total output power stability required for both application specific, and specific spectral regions of interest Our Light Source Family of SLED’s also provides the necessary Spectral Power Density as a key attribute, required for sensing applications and telecom uses which may or may not have polarization dependencies.

Application:

Broadband Fiber Coupled Light Sources for Spectroscopy, -telecommunication, test & measurements, component testing

Product Description:

Multiple Light Source Matching in One Broad Band Source - For multiple wavelength testing, our Dual 2 to Six 6 SLED combinations cover all the major network bands, which enables accurate characterization of fiber links and their passive components, with a very cost effective test set up. Use our 1300 nm/ 1500 nm source for most major passive components Isolators, Couplers.

SLED Light Sources Choice Selection for Component testing – The diverse SLED line of products offers enough variety of choice in power selection along with spectral symmetry You can efficiently qualify your components during your systems components development and perform Pass/Fail testing during production.

High Spectral Density Stability - High spectral density stability is essential to ensure that the test setup products accurate measurements. The more stable the spectrum, the less often a reference trace has to be acquired.
